and senator john kerry who chairs the senate committee on foreign relations is considered a contender and although that would leave an open senate seat for the democrats, that may not be a dealbreaker. >> in their favor this election, they had elbow room by the number of seats they won and many thought they wouldn't win, have that two-vote majority so maybe the president is willing to take a chance. >>guest: last time it was left open by the death of senator kennedy it went to a republican who was defied on tuesday. over two term presidencies over world war ii it is rare if any cabinet secretary to stick around for all eight years. >>shepard: it has been. urgent economic matters out there. what kind of effect does that have on the shuffle? >>guest: there is a feeling in washington that geithner would prefer to leave sooner rather than later but with shes of expiring tax cuts and sequestration whomming he is -- looming he is likely to stick around because he is invested in the negotiations that have been going on. >> that would be true of defense secretary panetta. he has fought hard a
ask, might be john kerry, the chairman of the foreign committee. susan rice, she certainly was on a very, very short list of possible secretaries of state. but in the aftermath of benghazi and the war, that could be a problem because of what she said on those five sunday television shows and republican anger at her as far as the confirmation process might be concerned. so we'll wait and see on that. i think you're right, timothy geithner, the secretary of the treasury, he made it clear he wants to move on. who might replace him. speculation that jack lieu, the white house chief of staff who twice served as the budget director, omb director and obama administration earlier in the clinton administration, he could be a candidate. there are others as well. i suspect eric holder, the attorney general, might move on and we'll see what happens on that front. but a lot of the other cabinet secretaries, i think are going to stay. i think they would like to stay and they probably will. so it's maybe not going to be as huge a shake-up as there often. >> i want to play for you somethin

kerr gee a better choice for secretary of state and if john kerry is, then that could be really good news for scott brown because if john kerry left as senator of massachusetts, there would be a special election. scott brown would most probably be favored. of course, he was beaten by elizabeth warren a couple days ago. >> brian: i have a better idea for him. colin powell. he's obviously a fan, knows his stuff. colin powell is obviously a supporter. it seems to be a good indication of reaching across the aisle. >> steve: maybe. >> brian: 24 minutes before the top of the hour. last night dennis miller did his normal stint on bill o'reilly. he had a different take, speaking from the heart rather than the sense of humor portion of plains. listen. >> the election, i think this is where this country is at right now. i don't know everybody else's political predirection. yesterday some people think this was the best day america ever had. its proudest moment. i don't agree. i know i'm going to be the object of readvantage now, but i'm not going to back off it. i like a country where people bu
presidential candidate, massachusetts senator john kerry, chairman of the senate foreign relations committee. another candidate? the president's national security adviser tom donilon, and perhaps a more controversial choice, u.n. ambassador susan rice, the obama administration's representative who gave the initial incorrect intelligence explanation of the benghazi attacks. still, most insiders believe rice and kerry are the two front-runners. white house veterans say clinton's eventual replacement will be on solid ground. >> the secretary of state in the second administration has the advantage of a president who has their bearings about what they want to accomplish around the world. >> in treasury the top candidate to replace timothy geithner white house chief of staff jack lew who has also served as the budget director. the president may decide to keep him where he is and perhaps look elsewhere to another senator or clinton administration veteran. at the pentagon leon panetta's departure may not occur until the spring but the list may include michele flournoy. she would be the first ever wo
? some say john kerry, some have speculated about susan rice, the embattled u.n. ambassador, stepping into hillary clinton's role. >> that sounds kind of farfetched, but who knows? anything's possible. certainly, the problem susan rice would have is because of what she said about the successful raid about islamist militants on the u.s. diplomatic outpost if benghazi being the fault of a youtube video, that was very bad for her. she would compound a problem that the departure of hillary clinton would help alleviate. state department's been really under close scrutiny because of the response to this. the lack of preparation for it, for the attack and the response thereafter, that's something they would like to get away from. putting susan rice in there would intensify it. megyn: last but not least, quickly, if geithner goes, i mean, that's an important job he has. and who is likely to fill that role, and how would it change americans', you know, day-to-day lives? >> well, what the president has in tim geithner's departure is an -- or assumed departure is an opportunity to send a message
of the names that's been thrown around, senator john kerry, who helped the president prepare for the debates, has been talked about possibly going to state. there are other names being thrown around as well, and i'm sure those lists will continue to grow in the coming days. as for the president, nothing public on his schedule today, other than the presidential daily briefing, that will happen later this morning. the first one that will happen here at the white house, since his re-election. the president and the first family return here to the white house, late yesterday. the staff was planning to have a welcome out on the south lawn, but because of bad weather, marine one could not land here, so it was a low-key arrival. what's on the president's agenda, moving forward, you've been talking about dealing with the fiscal cliff, also the president has to work on trying to unite the country after a very divisive and very expensive campaign. in addition, the president will work very hard to try to build a different relationship with members of congress. we saw him already reach out by phone to jo
